I assume you want to know which armies can be allies, fluffwise?

There is a nice Apocalypse Allies Matrix available on the GW-UK Website:

They have quite a lot to say about grammar, punctuation and spelling. Reading them takes only a couple of minutes, and it is really worth the time.

Speaking about that chart, I'm happy GW have the sense this time to let Eldar and Dark Eldar ally. That wasn't the case the last time they did a chart, though that chart was a simpler binary 'Can/Cannot' affair rather than this three grades one.

Pretty odd that Dark Eldar can ally with Necrons or Tyranids though... But I suppose that would be DE opportunism, taking advantage of the disruption that a Necron or Nid attack would make, rather than any kind of arranged alliance. Shame they can't ally with IG - Dark Eldar have been known to operate (or pose...) as Eldar mercenaries in the past, usually to the regret of their Imperial employers.



Maybe I'm fuzzy on the rules but isn't it possible to lead a Space Marine army with an allied Inquisitor? If so, that would let you ally Marines with Eldar, no?

if gw work on the principle that there all untrustworthy cutthroats, surely orks, chaos and possibly others would not trust each other either

Well, it's not the same I guess. I mean, Chaos and orks do fight against each other, but once they form an alliance, they usually stick to it at least until the battle ends. Those long-eared bastards though can put a dagger in your back just because they were behind you, and they liked your jacket. (OK, maybe that was an exaggeration in terms of individuals, but bring it to the level of detachments and it works perfectly.)

That chart is, from first impressions, pretty poor.

Necrons or Tyranids allying with anyone is pretty well garbage, Chaos/Guard being dire enemies (uh, Traitors anyone?), etc.

One thing though... That thing is for apoc... If youre playing in a doubles tournament, there is no rules on what armies that can be played...
